An update now on future of the Keystone XL pipeline. TransCanada says it's re-application for the federal permit is "imminent."

Sources and reports out of Washington D.C. is hearing it could be as early as Friday.

President Obama denied TransCanada's original permit in January.

Since then, TransCanada has proposed a new route one that goes around the Sandhills.

Shawn Howard with TransCanada couldn't confirm when the permit would be submitted to the US State Department.

In a phone interview he told 10/11, "We've always said that we wanted to re-apply for the Presidential Permit as quickly as possible, no date has been given yet, but again we hope to do that as quickly as possible."

In response to the news, Jane Kleeb with Bold Nebraska released a statement, it read in part, "A transparent process at the federal level will show TransCanada's risky pipeline is not in our national interest. A transparent process at the state level will show a route that crosses the Ogallala Aquifer is too risky."
